Hershey boys basketball lost to both Cumberland Valley and William Allen 71-50 and 58-53, respectively, on December 7-8, 2018.

With 18.4 seconds left in the second game, William Allen freshman Nate Ellis nailed a free throw to make the score 57-53, sealing Hershey’s fate of last place in the tournament. Despite valiant efforts in the fourth quarter, the Trojans’ fifteen point comeback was squandered.

While the end of Saturday’s game proved to be exciting the rest of Hershey’s performance was lackluster. Hershey did not have a lead in either game and only briefly held a tie score against William Allen.

To begin the first game, Cumberland Valley opened the scoring with a three-pointer and jumped out to a 14-5 lead halfway through the first quarter. Hershey staged a comeback after a three-pointer by senior Griffin Jackson made the score 25-27, but the Eagles has a 10-point lead by halftime and never looked back. The Eagles would go on to win the tournament.

After losing the first game, Hershey played William Allen in the consolation game, hoping to snag third place. After outscoring the Canaries 20-9 in the fourth quarter, the Trojans still couldn’t secure a victory.

These losses brought the Trojans’ record to 0-2, which they’ll try to improve in their next game against Mechanicsburg of Wednesday, December 12.
